    Hi,

    Is there a way to rotate a frame as if you would and image or another element where you have the rotate handle? I'm creating a lot of frames as dynamic symbols and then placing all these symbols onto the screen. For example I have a symbol of a conveyor that is used multiple times each one is a different angle, one may be 30 and other 45 degrees etc

    I have tried placing a rectangle around the lot and then grouping them but then I loose the rotation of the rectangle.

    Thanks

    Hey,
    you should be able to rotate frames with the feature "support client animations and overlay of native elements" in the visu manager.

    Best regards,

    Hi Marcel,

    This option was already selected, I also tried unselected and no difference. Should it give the rotation handle like the other elements?

    Thanks

      I have attached a project with 3x motors inside of frames and would like to rotate one of those to an angle of say 45 degrees. Thanks

        Hi Marcel,

        Did you have any luck finding out about rotating the frame?

        Thanks,

            Hi Marcel,

            Yes I have managed to rotate via the absolute movement in the runtime. I would like to rotate them in the design environment and fix them in that orientation. This is so I can align all my different symbols correctly for the production lines. It's looking like this is not possible at all?

            Thanks,
            Matthew

              No, rotating a frame offline is not possible at the moment.

              Best regards,
              Marcel
